Third Authors’ Workshop: 1 – 2 June 2012, Bonn, Germany

The Third Authors' Workshop of the Cologne Commentary on Space Law (The Third Authors' Workshop of the Cologne Commentary on Space Law (CoCoSL) took place at the premises of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Bonn, Germany, from 1 – 2 June 2012. Following two successful Authors' Workshops in January 2008 and June 2009, which were dedicated solely to the organization and preparation of the work on CoCoSL, the third workshop was arranged as a symposium under the headline:

"In Heaven as on Earth?”

The Interaction of Public International Law on the Legal Regulation of Outer Space

The authors and attendants discussed the interrelationship between public international law and space law, which before only found little attention. The symposium helped to further mutual understanding and hosted interesting discussions surrounding topics as State Responsibility, environmental law and the Jus ad bellum/Jus in bello. The schedule of the symposium is available for download
To preserve the outcome of the symposium, Proceedings are currently prepared by the Institute of Air and Space Law, University of Cologne, and the DLR for publication.
